GLEN PHILLIPS’S BIO: 
Born in Santa Barbara, CA, Glen Phillips served as the frontman and main songwriter for Toad the Wet Sprocket before launching his solo career in 2001. Toad the Wet Sprocket took shape in 1986, when Phillips was only 14 years old, and the band’s debut effort, Bread and Circus, earned them a contract with Columbia Records. However, it was the group’s third album — the jangling, orchestral Fear — that truly broke the group, garnering heavy radio play with the singles “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean.” Phillips began touring as a solo act after Toad the Wet Sprocket’s demise and worked with producer Ethan Johns to create his first solo album, 2001’s Abulum. He also collaborated on several songs with the bluegrass band Nickel Creek and toured with them for the latter half of 2001. In 2006, Glen toured North American with a reunited Toad the Wet Sprocket, although he only continued releasing new material under his own name.
